Table 3 Effect of insoluble fibre of CA on starch digestibility

From: Anti-hyperglycemic activity of Centella asiatica is partly mediated by carbohydrase inhibition and glucose-fiber binding

  1. Data are presented as Mean ± SEM (n = 4). Values represent the glucose concentration (μmol) in dialysate. Mean values marked with an asterisk (*) were significantly different from those of respective control groups (p < 0.05) (derived from repeated-measures ANOVA and adjusted using Bonferroni correction).
